Green Light For German-Norwegian Interconnector
On March 19, a contract for a subsea cable named NordLink was signed, under supervision of the Dutch royal couple, king Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima:
Contracts were signed today in Hamburg between NordLink partners TenneT, Statnett and KfW plus ABB AB for the construction and installation of the German section of the high voltage direct current transmission cable (HVDC cable) for the NordLink project and for the two converter stations. NordLink, the “green cable”, is the first direct connection between the German and Norwegian electricity markets.
NordLink is now being build, another one is planned (NorGer)
